A Quote From The Movie 'The Beach Bum' That Really Rubbed Me The Wrong Way When I Heard It......

Here's the quote by Jonah Hill as Lewis, Moondog's Agent (Matthew McConaughey):

You know what I like the most about being rich? You can just be horrible to people and they just have to take it.

I know it was just a movie quote - but given the climate we are in this country now under Trump - is this really how rich people think?
